Maybe not the best show ever, but it was played in the spirit of the day. 5 of my buddies, all around 300#, piled in a 2 door Ford Escort and drove 500 miles + to this show. The vehicle was forever splayed after that. They were splayed as well the next night when I saw them in Richmond.

The sound of '85 recordings is hard to beat. Some hiss on this one, but it is still fat & lovely.

I was there also. It was indeed a fun night. It poured after the show all the way back to North Carolina and if I remember correctly some of the streets in Richmond during the next shows were flooded because of Hurricane Gloria. Basically Gloria was on tour following us. The GD seemed to always have a cosmic connection with the weather.

I know; it does seem like we have traveled some of the same roads. Was your first show in Carolina? After two failed attempts I finally saw them for the first time on October 9, 1983 in Greensboro. During the weeks leading up to this show my buddy and I would look at the tickets frequently like we were holding the magical golden Willy Wonka ones. Man were we jazzed. I miss that feeling of anticipation before a show. Getting off the highway and seeing the first miracle seeker and then pulling up to lot and checking out the scene on Shakedown. Looking for friends; making new ones.

I remember you referred to the 1987 MSG shows recently. I was also at those five fine nights. And yeah just so I fit in...those shows in the eighties sucked. I hated every second of it. Hey that's why Baskin and Robbins has 31 flavors. Or like my grandpa used to say; opinions are like assholes everybody's got one.

Their only performance ever in South Carolina.

Quick, what were the five states the band never performed in?

I could have sworn they have played all 50 and Vermont was the last one they had to check off in the 90's.

They actually played in Vermont in 1978 and again in 1983, then in the summers of '94 and '95.

The 1994 show was the last time I would see them before Jerry passed. Not a great show in hindsight, but a helluva good time at the time.

Check out the 1983 show at Patrick Gymnasium. Barn burner.

You'd think so what with having played Alaska, Hawaii, ...Vermont as you point out. But there are five.

I'm going to say: North & South Dakota, Wyoming- no major markets there; Arkansas, and maybe Delaware? and they never played Puerto Rico...

We have a winner, repeat, we *have* a winner.

If that was off the top of your head I'm impressed.

I'm a bit surprised they never played Delaware.

Yeah, if there's one that jumps off the list it's probably Delaware. When in their College Campus Prime, when they were hitting places like the University of New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, all those Pennsylvania and Virginia and West Virginia schools, it seems like Delaware coulda been a stop.
